The weather has been very hard on my pigs skin , we have two weeks till show and the skin on my York looks very pale and unhealthy. I thought about rubbing cream on her but I dont know if this is proper or not. Can I do this ?

pale?

dry skin - revive by sullivan's can be used daily.
final bloom- is a light oil = that can be used as well,



aloe works, skin so soft by avon...

when washing, use baby shampoo, doesn't dry them out as much, condition after washing. if you are in a cold region, heat lamps and bedding can dry the skin also.

good luck

We make up a mix, 25% mineral oil, 25% human hair cond. and 50% water. Pray it on them. Has worked good for us in the past.

my show pig has really dry skin too, I was wondering what I could put on it to help him. Thank-you for your suggestions I will try them. where do you find the Revive product at? do you have to order it or does any ranch supply place have it?

had to start using the oatmeal shampoo for dogs made by Hartz for son's gilt because everything else made her go NUTS after washing and would scratch until she bleed

if you can get you hands on some liquid vit E or the vit E gel caps and feed them to that will help, but it take time for that to kick in

the main and tail work well on one gilts, sprayed it on and worked in with hands and then follow up with brush and did it every 3rd day

green aloa for sun burns, don't use the blue because it has tea tree oil and it will burn

have you checked to see if he's got lice or mites on him ivemec will get rid of that
